Adam Wreck and the Kalosian Space Pirates
by Michael S. Bracco
juvenile science fiction
Levittown, NY : Alterna Comics, 2009
Young Adam Wreck is bored out of his mind! He is traveling through deep space with his scientist parents who are searching for alien life. For two years Adam has been away from friends, TV and new video games. He just wants something interesting to happen for once. Finally his wish comes true and the family ship is attacked by pirates. Adam is able to flee in an escape pod and discovers a treasure of galactic proportions. Adam has the adventure he has been yearning for with some unexpected side affects.
Adam Wreck's exciting and entertaining adventure is sure to be a hit with boys. The black, white, gray and orange illustrations are engaging and accompanied by just the right amount of text to not turn away even the most reluctant readers. I hope there are more tales to tell of Adam Wreck and his adventures through space.
